ARCA Racing

The ARCA racing series is where the future stars of stock car racing are groomed - not just drivers, but team owners, crewmen and race officials. Drivers such as Ty Dillon, Chris Buescher, Michael McDowell, Scott Speed and Justin Allgaier have all raced their way through the ranks of ARCA to compete in the top levels of stock car racing. Year after year, young guns such as Brennan Poole, Kyle Benjamin and others continue to make winning extremely difficult for series veterans. Legendary ARCA ace Frank Kimmel, shown in the photo below leading the pack at Salem Speedway, knows how difficult it is to maintain his status as the premier ARCA series driver. However, in 2013 Frank still managed to set a new ARCA record for total career wins (80) and added a tenth ARCA season championship to his impressive racing resume.

Jay Alley has been covering ARCA racing since 2006 at tracks such as Salem Speedway (above), Talladega Superspeedway, Winchester, Michigan International Speedway and Chicagoland. In 2013, he served as ARCA's official photographer at Michigan and supported their regular photographer at several other races where he helped the series gather high definition images of ARCA's fender to fender racing action. Beginning in 2015, Jay began work on a nearly full time basis for the series as its Chief Photographer and has worked 41 of 60 ARCA races and all of the national championship awards banquets since 2014.

Jay also worked for current NASCAR driver Michael McDowell in 2007, the year Michael won the ARCA season title. Jay's ARCA coverage has also appeared in Stock Car Racing magazine in a feature article written by former American Motor Journal publisher, the late Don Hamilton, about Don's experiences working with the Salem track safety crew during an ARCA event. Each year since 2007 has resulted in even bigger things for Jay's ARCA work! For race stats and details on joining the ARCA Nation from ARCA's website, click on the ARCA logo above.
